William Lloyd Garrison writes: "Enlcosed, you will find the notice for the 1st of August celebration at Abington. Also, the disclaimer of Conway's mischievous overture to Mason, by the Executive Committee of the American Anti-Slavery Society." (See Ms.A.1.2 v.41, p.41B for more about this disclaimer.) Garrison is slowly learning the details of the New York anti-draft riots. He expects there to be a similar riot in Boston. Garrison comments: "How sad the fate of Superintendent Kennedy! How honorably he deserves to be remembered for the manner in which he aimed to discharge the responsible duties of his position!"
